Despite their victory, Napoli are continuing the press silence, refusing to release coach Gennaro Gattuso, players or directors to speak with the media.
The Partenopei ended their dismal run of results with a 2-0 win over Benevento at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona.
Dries Mertens got the opener by redirecting a deflected shot, then Matteo Politano bundled Lorenzo Insigne’s cross over the line from close range.
However, Napoli confirmed they will continue the press silence, so Gattuso and all other club employees are not permitted to speak with the media.
Mertens had a special dedication with his goal anyway, as the dance he does sticking out his tongue is a version of the jig performed by their legendary kitman Tommaso Starace.
Today is Tommy Starace’s birthday, so Mertens rushed to the bench to hug him.
